Di María fined for Spanish tax fraud

Portugal sidesteps Ronaldo's legal woes at Confed Cup

Another Mendes client, Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, is suspected of failing to correctly declare 5.6 million euros of income earned from image rights between 2012 and 2013 while he was at Atletico Madrid.

On Tuesday, Ronaldo was told to appear before a judge for questioning on July 31.

Manchester United manager and former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud worth 3.3 million euros (£2.9 million) by a Spanish state prosecutor.

The announcement comes a week after Real Madrid's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of evading 14.7 million euros in tax through offshore companies.

Mourinho's agents said he had already dealt with questions raised by tax authorities in 2015, settling issues with his 2011 and 2012 filings and reaching a settlement regarding 2013.

It will now be up to a judge to decide whether to take the matter to court.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing, and is ready to quit Spanish football.

Also previous year, Barcelona star Lionel Messi and father Jorge Horacio Messi were found guilty of tax fraud and given 21-month sentences, which will likely be suspended.

The two were given 21-month jail sentences but neither is expected to serve prison time since it was a first offense and the sentence was under two years.

Di Maria's deal is similar to the one struck by Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano, who was convicted of tax fraud last year and given a suspended one-year sentence.
